Friends of Hillcroft

Friends of Hillcroft Registered Charity No. 1186734
 
The Friends of Hillcroft are a group of parents, carers and friends who raise money for the school to provide additional resources.  We do this by organising a range of events throughout the year – such as the Christmas and Spring Fairs, uniform and Christmas jumper sales, discos and PJ and Popcorn afternoons for the children.  We have also held bingo and quizzes for the adults.  We try and make our activities fun and social.  
 
Our fundraising has purchased amongst other things a library mural and furniture, books and book corner furniture for all classes, ipad stands, maths equipment, murals in the corridors, sports equipment, visiting reindeers, Internet safety sessions and an interactive bird nesting box.  In December 2018 an all weather trim trail was installed which was funded solely by the Friends of Hillcroft.  Our next purchase will be chrome books for the children to use.
 
We are always looking for new volunteers to help out.  There are many ways you can join in from running a stall at our fairs or discos, helping source raffle prizes or joining our committee which normally meets once or twice a term. However, you do not have to sit on the committee to help out. 
 
One really easy way to support us is by using Easyfundraising, Amazon Smile or Give as You Live when you are online shopping and choosing to support Friends of Hillcroft.  
 
If you would like to get involved  or find out more information please or contact us at friends@hillcroftschool.org and we also have a facebook page @friendsofhillcroftprimaryschool.
